Gol airline to launch flights between Brazil and Cuba starting December

Brazil’s second-largest airline Gol will launch new regular flights to Cuba in December, according to Hipólito Rocha Gaspar, the Director General of the Agency for Promotion of Exports and Investments.

The airline will operate flights between Sao Paulo in Brazil and Havana in Cuba from 1st December, 2015. In the first phase until 31st January, 2016, the flights will be weekly on Sunday and will fly via Aruba, and in February there will two flights a week via Manaus in the Amazon.

Gol mainly offers international flights in the American Southern Cone countries, and it also offers two services to the Dominican Republic and Aruba in the Caribbean.

Cuba is a Caribbean nation that is undergoing significant changes following the resumed diplomatic relations between the country and the United States.

In July this year, embassies opened in Washington and Havana for the first time in more than 50 years. While the decades-long travel embargo has not yet been lifted for American residents, travel restrictions have been eased. American travellers are also not allowed to visit the island unless they meet special criteria such as being Cuban-Americans or take part in special cultural people to people programmes or educational tours that come under 12 licenced categories.

Located east of Mexico and south of the United States, the socialist country is rich in political history and boasts some of the world’s most magnificent natural landscapes such as white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, and the world’s second largest barrier reef, as well as the Spanish Colonial city of Trinidad and the historic capital Havana.

Havana is the capital of Cuba and a vibrant hub that is home to live music, fine cuisine, and crumbling historic buildings. The city boasts an array of tourist hotspots such as the Malecon, a seafront promenade that runs along the main streets of Havana and offers beautiful views of the bay; the Catedral de San Cristobal; the maritime museum, Castillo de la Real Fuerza; the Old Town, a UNESCO site with restored buildings and the tourist square, Plaza de Armas.
